I don't understand why the same state legislature that doesn't like it when the federal government tells it what to do is telling Tucson how to run UA Healthcare. I don't like the idea of the board including 12 "community members", none of whom are necessarily from the Tucson community. Of the 12, 4 are to be appointed by Governor Brewer, 4 by Speaker of the House Kirk Adams (District 19, NE Mesa & north Apache Junction), and 4 by Senate President Russell Pearce (District 18, Mesa). Who knows who these elected officials would pick? Senator Biggs is rather hypocritical for his criticism of how the "academics" govern the University of Arizona when the state of Arizona is in such a mess. I honestly don't know the politics of the current UA Healthcare board, nor do I have any personal stake in them, but I would rather the state stayed out of it.Apr 14, 2011
